7:01 am
>> president obama and mitt romney set to square off did in denver. >> dealing with an october surprise after video of an old speech resurfaced. senator obama accuses u.s. government of short changing hurricane katrina victim. >> people down in new orleans they don't care about as much. >> meanwhile joe biden just gave the republicans some great new material. >> how they can justify raises taxes on the middle class that's been buried the last four years. >> i'm sorry, which candidate is he campaigning for? i'm confused. had hillary clinton put together an investigation for the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. american airlines plans to check at least 11 more planes for loose seats. clamps have caused the seats to come loose on three flights. hit by a car, stuck in its grill and managed to survive. >> the luckiest dog i've met. now cops looking for the
7:02 am
woman who did it. >> leave manatees alone. don't be grabbing dolphins either. until tonight. >> swing and a miss and he strikes out. all that -- >> even if you don't get -- >> i know. pay back its debt in full immediately. >> and all that matters. >> you know nothing about me but what you see on the outside. and i am much more than a number on a scale. on "cbs this morning." >> presidential candidates who blink less during a debate are more likely to win the election or as michele bachmann put it, any way i can get back in this thing? hey! thing? hey! there you go. captioning funded by cbs good morning. it is wednesday, october 3rd. for the first time tonight, president obama and mitt romney
7:03 am
will face each other on stage with millions of voters watching. >> as they got ready for their first debate, the president faced criticism for a five-year-old speech and his running mate misspoke again. jan crawford is live in colorado with a preview. good morning. >> good morning, norah. good morning, charlie. both candidates have been under enormous pressure, preparing for more than a month. we saw them take a break to get away from it all but then last night the video changed the conversation. romney went for mexican at chipotle along with ohio senator rob portman, playing the role of president obama in mock debates. in nevada, the president, who has been rehad hersing with massachusetts senator john kerry as romney, went to the hoover dam. >> it's spectacular. i've never seen it before. >> reporter: both left the day's campaigning to their number
7:04 am
twos. in charlotte, vice president joe biden was trying to argue that romney would raise taxes on the middle class when he implied that president obama's policies already have hurt. >> how they can justify raising taxes in the middle class that's been buried the last four years, how in lord's name can they justify raising their taxes? >> reporter: biden later tried to dig out of that hole. but republicans pounced. >> vice president biden just today said that the middle class over the last four years has been, quote, buried. we agree. that means we need to stop digging by electing mitt romney the next president of the united states. >> reporter: but the day's events quickly were overshadowed by a 2007 speech of then presidential candidate and senator obama veering off his prepared script before a predominantly black audience he seemed to imply the federal government was withholding recovery money to new orleans after hurricane katrina based on
7:05 am
race. after september 11th and hurricane andrew in 1992 in florida, the government response was -- >> we're not going to wait for you to scratch it together because you're part of the american family. >> reporter: but after katrina, he said it was different. >> what's happening down in new orleans? where is your dollar? tells me that somehow the people down in new orleans, they don't care about as much. >> reporter: now in this speech we saw last night, the president said he didn't think the initial response to hurricane katrina was motivated by race. he said that incompetence was color blind. this speech was covered in 2007. it was aired last night on the conservative media, fox on hanity, the daily caller. that prompted some to speculate that perhaps the right is concerned about this campaign or wanting to throw a punch and others are saying maybe they're hoping to get under the president's skin going into tonight's debate. >> jan crawford, thank you. also at the debate site in denver is kevin madden.
7:06 am
senior adviser to the campaign. >> good morning. >> good morning. thanks for having me. >> governor romney has to be aggressive and at the same time relaxed, recognizing the circumstances. will we, tonight, see a new mitt romney? that we have not seen before? >> i think you'll see the mitt romney that really cares about putting the american people back to work. i think that's the most important goal that the governor has. you know, we've spent these last few months of this campaign trying to clarify the choice that americans have. and i think we've sumed it up very aptly with the question we posed to the american public, do they really want another four years like the last four years? whether it's tax reform, how we lower energy costs, how we lower health care costs, that's going to be an important question that governor romney poses. and essentially offer people that haven't made up their mind yet during this election the clear choice and contrast that with the failed record of the
7:07 am
obama administration. >> kevin, i want to get to some of the specifics on the issues. first i want to ask you about that video jan just showed in her piece, a speech obama made in 2007 covered by all of the networks who had reporter there is at the time. >> right. >> do you think that video is relevant? >> i think a lot of people -- voters have to make that up, look at that video and make up their mind on that individually. i thenk what's more important to this debate right now are the president's policies, the president's record over the past four years. that's going to be the most important topic on stage tonight. >> but kevin as you know -- >> the president's record on the economy and putting people back to work. that hasn't happened over the past four years. that's the more important debate. voters will be watching this conversation that we have tonight and they're going to ask themselves a question, do i want another four years of status quo that president obama is offering or do i want to set the country on a new course as it relates to
7:08 am
job creation, a new course as it relates to the economy? >> sean hanity said last night he thinks this video is a bombshell. do you think it's a bombshell and will the romney campaign use it in television ads as the obama team has used that 47% video in television ads? >> i think that it was covered in 2007. i think a number of folks are going to continue to cover it today. how they cover it in that context, a lot of that is up to individual voters and whether they think it's relevant to the conversation we're having today. we believe, as a campaign -- i think governor romney believes what's most relevant are the president's policies and how they're affecting the economy today, how they're affecting people's bottom line, how they're affecting household incomes. that's a much more relevant debate that we're going to focus on as a campaign. >> kevin, if they do not see a new romney, will they see a romney offering specifics as to deductions that he might prefer in terms of what we do not now see in tax reform?
7:09 am
>> well, it's hard to get into a whole lot of specifics, particularly when you're talking about something as complex as all the deductions that you would go through as far as broadening the base of tax reform. on the issue of tax reform, i think governor romney would offer a great deal of specifics. >> that we have not heard before. >> on what he would do as far as the middle class -- >> that we haven't heard before? >> a lot of that, charlie, depends on the question. a lot of the specifics that you're talking about as far as what tax reform looks like, whether it's lowering the corporate rate in order to make sure we're more competitive as an economy in this global marketplace but also lowering middle class taxes and making the economy more competitive as a result, i think you'll hear more details of specifics. you'll hear a great contrast because the president's reforms haven't done enough to help the economy. >> kevin madden, thank you. let's turn to robert gibbs, senior adviser to the obama campaign. good morning, robert.
7:10 am
>> good morning, guys. how are you? >> good. i also want to give you an opportunity to respond to that tape that was air bid fox, the president talking about what happened in new orleans. does the president believe the bush administration did not help the victims of had hurricane ka treen a because of their race? >> well, look, as you said, the president said that the incompetence that surround ed hurricane katrina was color blind. disaster assistance requires a 10% match for communities to qualify for disaster assistance. we waived it for hurricane andrew, we waived it for new york city in 9 the/11 and barack obama and members of the mississippi and louisiana delegations all believed we should also waive it for new orleans. >> you're not worried about that effects of this tape? >> if the republicans want to defend the bush administration's response to katrina, i'm sure the president would give them his time during the debate to do
7:11 am
that. i have to say i'm a little amazed that a widely covered speech likely by people at your network has somehow caused a ke kerflu kerfluffle because someone like hannity decides to cover it five years later. >> let me move on. is there something that the obama campaign believes the president has to do tonight because clearly the romney people believe this is their opportunity to reset this campaign? >> i think what you'll hear the president do tonight is have a conversation directly with the american people about where we've been the past four years and what we have to continue to do to move forward to strengthen our economy, build it from the middle out and give people a real sense of security and opportunity, talk about retraining workers and bringing
7:12 am
manufacturing jobs back in this country, hiring new math and science teachers to improve our education, doubling our exports, all those things that will help create jobs as we move forward and strengthen our economy. i was struck by kevin's answer about the fact that once again the romney campaign says they really don't have time to discuss the specifics of their tax plan. and, you know, this is a $5 trillion tax cut for the wealthy. >> we also haven't heard the specifics of what the president prepared to do in terms of spending cuts as well. >> i don't think that's true. if you look at the budget plan that the president is outlining, $4 trillion spending cut plan that deals with making sure that our tax code is fair and that those that are on the upper end of that tax code are pay iing a little bit more. let's be clear, mitt romney's $5 trillion tax plan isn't hard to explain because of the time. it's hard to explain because of the math. the math doesn't add up. $5 trillion isn't paid for. what that requires, as economic
7:13 am
studies have shown, is that mitt romney will have to raise taxes on middle class families. >> speaking of middle class families, robert, median household income for americans in the four years that barack obama has been in office has dropped $4,000. middle class families are hurting. and yesterday, the vice president, joe biden, said how can you justify raising taxes on the middle class that has been buried the last four years. was that a gaffe by biden, or was he speaking the truth? >> what vice president biden was saying is what i believe many middle class families throughout this country believe, median household income at any time fall in the last four years. median household income fell in the last decade for the first time since we began keeping statistics. >> the vice president said buried the last four years, suggesting something happened during the obama administration. >> no. what joe biden and president obama have suggested each and every day on this campaign trail is that we had eight years of
7:14 am
horrific economic decisions, tax cuts for the very wealthy, wall street writing its own rules, culminating in an economic disaster that took place about four years ago, of which we've had to dig out from each day of the last four years. but let's be clear, norah, the middle class has been buried for a lot longer than the time we've been dealing with bad economic decisions from the former administration. people in the middle class have been working harder each and every day and watching their wages decline. >> robert gibbs, good to see you this morning. thank you. >> thank you. >> tonight's coverage of the debate begins at 9:00 eastern time, 6:00 in the west. for the first time since the deadly attack in benghazi, libya, secretary of state hillary clinton is responding to congress' demand for more information. margaret brennan in washington has seen the request and the response. margaret, good morning. >> good morning to you, charlie. secretary clinton pledged that
7:15 am
nobody will hold this department more accountable than we will hold ourselves. a known security failure at the benghazi conflict. representative darrel issa detailed this in a letter saying prior to the september 11th attack, the u.s. mission in libya made repeated requests for increased security in benghazi. the mission in libya, however, was denied these resources by officials in washington. issa, his staff has not detailed the new intelligence and has not shared it with all democratic committee members, leading to allegations that they're politicizing the attack. its own five-person committee, chairman of the joint chiefs included, will begin their probes this week. senior aides will hand over e-mails to show who knew what and when. the state department has avoided comments on the investigation, but today the secretary will respond to questions about the contradictory reports of just what happened in benghazi.
7:16 am
>> that will likely be news. margaret brennan, thank you very much. american airlines pilots say they'll resume contract talks with the airline later this week. meanwhile the airline has found more planes with seats that could come loose in mid flight. at a dallas-ft. worth airport, america american's main hub. >> reporter: their concern, a problem with seats not adequately attached to the floor. now so far, american reports it has found a total of six planes with the problem. those jets cleared maintenance checks before takeoff. after inspecting nearly half of its active boeing 757 fleet, american airlines says it now knows why seats have been coming loose mid flight, blaming a device known as a saddle clamp used to secure a row of three seats to the floor.
7:17 am
>> we've deployed a number of mechanics throughout the entire system. >> reporter: david campbell was vice president of safety and security at american. >> we believe we have narrowed it down to how those were installed. >> reporter: two flights were forced to make emergency landings. the first incident occurred last wednesday on a flight from vail to dallas. the problem resurfaced saturday on the same plane, flying from boston to miami. >> the seat is loose. we don't want that thing flying around and hurting the passengers behind them. >> reporter: american says it hasn't been able to link the issue to one maintenance facility, but the company has ruled out sabotage. >> after both contract and our own internal maintenance. so finding what's causing was mechanical or human error is what we're trying to do. >> reporter: despite the company's ongoing labor dispute, travel experts are still not
7:18 am
telling passengers to steer clear of the airline. >> i will tell you personal for thanksgiving and christmas i have a trip booked on american. i don't feel uncomfortable with it. if you ask me in three weeks and they haven't solve this had labor issue i night mite get a little more uncomfortable. >> reporter: the two planes that had the original problem are now back in service. american airlines says no passengers have been injured in any of those incidents. >> time to show you the headlines from this morning. shot tuesday, another agent was wounded. they were responding to an alarm. >> former penn state football coach mike mcqueary is suing penn state university. he was the star witness against jerry sandusky. he claims

7:29 am vo: for years, sacramento politicians have chopped away funds for our schools. today, we're forty-seventh out of fifty in per-pupil funding. now these politicians say unless we send more tax dollars to sacramento, they'll cut education again. here's a new approach. prop thirty-eight sends billions in new education dollars straight to our local schools, and guarantees the politicians can't touch it. thirty-eight will restore the education cuts from sacramento. so remember this number.

7:31 am
charity fraud, we finally know his real name. >> authorityies say he's a harvard law school graduate who has been wanted by the fbi for a very long time. 48 hours correspondent erin moriarty has the story. >> john donald cody has been on the run since 1984 when he suddenly fell off the grid around the same time he was accused of fraud. cody and a man named bobby thompson are one in the same person and allege he's responsible for one of the largest charity scams in u.s. history. the many faces of a man who called himself bobby thompson, a master of disguise that authorities believe was hiding a checkered past. last april, thompson, posing as a retired canadian mounty, was resting at this house in oregon. >> not dressed up in a fancy suit, just a regular person.
7:32 am
>> being pursued by authorities in a nine-state cross country manhunt as the alleged master mind behind an organization called the united states navy veterans association, a fake charity that took in $100 million in donations over an eight-year period. authorities say the money never got to the people it was supposed to. instead, with a reputation acquired through a seemingly successful charity, thompson used the money to gain access to some of the nation's most powerful republicans, including house speaker john boehner, former presidential candidate ru rudy giuliani and john mccain and even president george w. bush. but when he was transferred to ohio to face charges, the man authorities believed to be thompson signed in to prison as mister x, leading ofgs ining of believe he was hiding something more. >> major fraud fugitives. >> u.s. marshal peter elliott
7:33 am
said by simply searching the internet he found an fbi wanted posted for a similar-looking man, john donald cody, harvard educated attorney who mysterious disappeared from his arizona law practice in 1984 and was later indicted in four counts of estate fraud. original wanted posters described a man without tear ducts. former landlady was called who said her one-time tenant left behind something unusual, two big bottles of eye drops. >> it's said that he had no tear ducts, that he had to use eye drops all the time. in my world, in our world, one and one equals two. >> reporter: also left behind in that apartment, one dvd. >> it's been a while since i've done this. which one is the jump seat again? >> reporter: a fugitive on the run in "catch me if you can." but it wasn't until the fbi searched the military's own fingerprint files, going back to 1969, the year cody last served,
7:34 am
that a positive match was finally made. >> we love doing this. whoa love catching the people that don't think they can be caught. and even more than that, we love identifying the people that think they never can be identified. >> in another twist of events to this multi-layered tale, the fbi has linked cody to an espionage investigation. it will be interesting to see if there are any charges brought on that. >> we're being joined now by john miller. thank you, erin. what do you make of this? >> there's something a little off here. listening to this story and talking to the marshal yesterday, they said we ran the prints when we arrested him and nothing came back. we went through the internet photos. why shouldn't they come back when you ran the prints? this will run every conspiracy
7:35 am
theory. we don't know why his prints weren't in the system. in clarksburg, virginia, 70 million prints. you run them. they come back in 12 minutes and have wanted posters out on this guy for both federal irs indictment for fraud and suspected espionage. you would have thought they would have added his prints to fielt. >> he was just indicted, never arrested on those. >> but the military had his prints on file the way they have the prints of everybody in the military, particularly those in military intelligence. and what should have happened was an agent should have gone down to the military, picked up those prints when they put out the wanted poster and added them into his file. he could have been stopped for dui. >> the moral of this story, we need to coordinate all prints? >> i bet what happened here is you've got an irs case in phoenix, sechlt spionage case in washington, fbi fugitive case in
7:36 am
phoenix and every fbi agent thought the other guy had pulled the prints and put them in the suspect. it's probably pretty mundane but people will speculate and make it more interesting. >> he started off on the straight and narrow. he first came out of harvard, went to work for a very prestigious law firm in new york city. when he went to arizona he tried to set up a system where you would have lawyers appointed for indigents. in may he takes off with $100,000 of a client's, allegedly, and starts off on this life of crime. >> what's this spying about? >> the espionage case has to do with -- as all of this was spinning up in the fraud thing, he apparently tried to make contact with or made contact with a hostile foreign power or intelligence officer. and because of his former secret clearances, the fact that he was a reservist in intelligence, that's what he was saying, where they do very sensitive work, they wanted to know why are you
7:37 am
talking to these people? that is something now that they have him they will focus on. >> he was hiding in plain sight, having pictures taken with senator john mccain, congresswoman michele bachmann. >> speaker boehner. >> rudy giuliani. >> that's interesting. aaron erin moriarty, john miller, thank you. crash dummies used to be nothing more than rag dolls. now they've gone high tech. where some very smart dummies are helping to save lives. you're watching "cbs this morning." ,,,,

he struck out on three pitches but later said it was all worth
7:42 am
it. and got a standing ovation. >> we were hoping for a home run, weren't we? >> yeah. >> but he got what he really wanted to do, that moment to come back. >> inspired us all. more americans are dying on the highway. traffic deaths rose 9% in 2012. analysts think that people are driving more thanks to the economy and a mild winter. >> reduce the amount of traffic deaths, mark strassmann visited a general motors test lab. you really went behind the scene. >> we did, nora. all part of the car's cocoon with the physics of crashes. the life they save could be yours. you'll find some of the smartest dummies in the world. high caliber bullet travels 100 feet and fatal car accident can go from start to finish. 32,000 americans were killed in
7:43 am
motor vehicle accidents in 2011, the lowest number since the government started keeping records in 1949. outside detroit, jack jensen's worth is to make that deadly number drop faster. >> our cars are safer today due to the workhorse of this family of crash dummies and the work they do, day in, and day out. >> jensen runs the crash test dummy lab for general motors. >> this is the family? >> this is our family of hybrid crash test dummies. we've had different sizes of adults and different sizes of children. >> jensen's 12 employee s test anthropomorp hichlt c test devices, atds. >> designed to mimic how a real person's chest would compress. how the dummy's neck bends during a severe crash is also
7:44 am
designed to bend the way a human's neck would bend during a crash. >> it's painful to see. this is how they research how wrecks affect necks. car crashes are as old as cars and so is the drive to help people survive. in the 190s, the process was primitive at best. for a roll over test, engineers pushed a car sideways down a steep hill. to re-create a head-on crash, a very human driver had to actually jump out at the last second before his car hit the steel wall. and this is the great grandfather of today's dummies, tha served general motors in world war ii. >> dummy evolution, side by side here. this is how many years apart? oh, sorry. sorry, guy. >> this dummy is from the 1940s. he was used by the united states military for parachute testing. it would have been dropped from
7:45 am
an airplane with a parachute and you would have picked up the dummy and see what broke. >> by comparison, today's testing technology is staggering. gm is already testing the next generation of crash stand-ins, sensors on the latest start dummy can measure two data points per second. >> walk me through the guts of this thing. >> this is our new crash dummy. these are made out of high-strength steel and designed to mimic human ribs when impacted from the side. >> this one lab, which gm says is the largest in the world has 170 test dummies. there are 25 different shapes and sizes, ranging from 25,000 to $400,000 a piece, about $20 million worth of dummies. there are about 350 frontal crash tests a year at this lab. and more than 100 rollovers.
7:46 am
all told, they perform about 10,000 separate tests a year here, from cars to car seats. >> when used correctly, it can reduce the risk of fatality by 71% for a child. >> how often is it used correctly? >> not as often as we like. three out of four car

work. i think that's the most important goal that the governor has. >> i think what you'll hear the president do tonight is have a conversation directly with the american people about where we've been over the past four years and what we have to continue to do moving forward. secretary clinton pledged tuesday that nobody will hold this department more accountable than we hold ourselves. that statement was prompted by a claim of a known security failure at the benghazi conflict. american airlines has found more planes with seats that could come loose in mid flight. the two planes that had the original problem are now back in service. american airlines says no passengers have been injured in any of those incidents. this is how many years apart? i'm sorry. >> sorry guy. last night the miami marlins gave adam greenberg another chance. he struck out on three pitches. presidential debates will be seen live on youtube. as a result both candidates have been busy learning how to dance gangnam style.

i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. a television anchor is making her own news this morning by calling out a critic who said her weight makes her a bad role model. >> jennifer livingston of our cbs affiliate wkbt in lacrosse, wisconsin, went on air tuesday with this message to your viewers. >> i want to take a moment to address a situation that has become a talking point especially on facebook that centers around me. on friday i received the following e-mail from a lacrosse man with a subject line "community responsibility." it reads as follows. hi, jennifer. it's unusual that i see your morning show but i did so for a very short time today. i was surprised indeed to witness that your physical condition hasn't improved for many years. surely you don't consider yourself a suitable example for this community's young people, girls in particular.
8:03 am
obesity is one of the worst choices a person can make and one of the most dangerous habits to maintain. i leave you this note hoping that you'll reconsider your responsibility as a local public personality to present and promote a healthy lifestyle. now, those of us in the media, we get a healthy dose of critiques from our viewers throughout the year, and we realize that it comes from having a job in the public eye, but this e-mail was more than that. while i tried my best to laugh off the very hurtful attack on my appearance, my colleagues could not do the same, especially my husband, our 6:00 and 10:00 anchor mike thompson. mike posted this e-mail and what happened next has been truly inspiring. hundreds and hundreds of people have taken the time out of their day to not only lift my spirits, but take a stand that attacks like this are not okay. we're going to have more on that in just a second. but first, the truth is, i am
8:04 am
overweight. you can call me fat and yes, even obese on a doctor's chart. but to the person who wrote me that letter, do you think i don't know that, that your cruel words are pointing out something that i don't see? you don't know me. you are not a friend of mine. you are not a part of my family and you have admitted that you don't watch the show, so you know nothing about me but what you see on the outside. and i am much more than a number on a scale. we need to teach our kids how to be kind, not critical, and we need to do that by example. so many of you have come to my defense over the past four days, i am literally overwhelmed by your words. we are better than that e-mail. we are better than the bully that is would try to take us down. i leave you with this, to all the children out there who feel lost, who are struggling with your weight, with the color of your skin, your sexual preference, your disability, even the acne on your face,
8:05 am
listen to me right now. do not let yourself-worth be defined by bullies. learn from my experience that the cruel words of one are nothing compared to the shouts of many. >> jennifer livingston is with us now. good morning, jennifer. >> good morning. thanks for having me. >> well, we in the media get criticized often. and you decided to fight back and call this particular viewer out. why? >> in my opinion, getting e-mails, usually it's something about a story which i think is fair game or something about the coat i'm wearing or the way my hair is styled. this was paernl attack, not only on my size, but on my ability to roll model our community and young girls. and i am a mother of three girls and that hit home and i did not think that is fair. that e-mail was well written. it was articulate. make no mistake about it, it was
8:06 am
meant to hurt my feelings. it was meant to shame me into losing weight, and in my opinion, that's a bully. >> jennifer, you say it was cruel, that e-mail, and your response to it has gone viral. i saw it on twitter. people tweeting to me saying have you seen this? were you surprised by the reaction? >> very surprised. i have never done anything like that. i've never done an editorial in my 15 years in the business. so i knew it would get some reaction locally. i was hoping to inspire people within our community to start the conversation about bullying. i had no idea that this would happen. i'm happy it did. i'm not sure what i've gotten myself into. but i can champion a cause for students and kids out there, i'm happy to do it. >> i have to say, jennifer, go you. i get these cranky yankee e-mails all the time so i know exactly what you mean and how you feel. i am curious, though, about how you feel about your weight. those of us who struggle with
8:07 am
weight. i'm a card-carrying member of jenny craig. i know this struggle. i know what it means. how do you feel? are you thinking, i am fine the way i am or, listen, i am trying to lose a couple pounds. >> i have always struggled with my weight since i started having children, since my daughter was born ten years ago. it has been a roller coaster ride of weight gain and loss. i lost 40 pounds between my second and third child and gained it all back and then some with thigh mie third child who is now a year old. if i cannot shop off the plus-size rack, that would be great. i'm not ashamed of myself. i'm proud of who i am. i think i do a job that is not necessarily worth being critical about my appearance. talk to me about the stories i cover, not the way i look. >> there you go. >> jennifer, part of the story is what you said and did. the other part is the response from people. what do you think it was about?
8:08 am
what's the greater meaning of this and how much did it mean to you? >> well, i have had the conversation with my own 10-year-old daughter about bullying, and i'm trying to encourage her, step up for people who are being bullied. if someone is coming after you, you need to be strong and stand up for yourself. when we talked about this e-mail as a family, what kind of a role model if i don't do it myself. that is what i have seen as a reaction from the people literally around the world. they're saying thank you for standing up for us. i think it's not just a weight issue. this is not a weight issue. people are bullied about so many different things. and we just need to take a stand. it's not okay. i think hopefully i'm going to be one of many that is taking the charge in that, and we can change the way that our society is today. >> have you had any communication with the man who sent you the e-mail? i see he's released another statement. >> yes. he released a statement. we reached out to him. we actually invited him on our
8:09 am
show and he declined to do that. he released a statement saying he hopes this platform i have now been given is a great opportunity for me to lose weight in front of everywhere and he encourages me to do that and hopes in a year i will be a better example of health for people. he's standing strong. >> you know what? i think the role model that you show is not everybody on tv has to be a skinny mini to be successful. i say go you, jennifer livingston. i know who your brother is, ron livingston. what does he say to you? he was on sex and the city. >> i got an e-mail that said something like, whoa, saw you all over the place and way to go, sis. >> we say that, too. thank you, jennifer. it is now 8:09. time now to check your local weather.

8:22 am
i couldn't believe it. just amazing. >> reporter: suzy has fully recovered from her minor injuries. >> this is definitely one of the luckiest dogs i ever met. >> reporter: the saga continued across the country when a unsuspecting driver found a furrey freeloader trapped under his hood at a stop light in california. >> i came out of my truck and i looked under there and right through there i saw fur sticking out. to my surprise when i opened up the hood, he gave me like a smile. and i took a picture right away. >> reporter: this dog survived a 110-mile drive in 100-degree heat. and the owners aren't located, the man plans to take him home. so it seems this time and the dog days of october it's mut over machine. for "cbs this morning," terrell brown, new york. >> how much do we love that story? >> we love the story. >> we love it, yeah. >> they're both okay. this morning we'll track a

8:41 am
it was sort of like -- i grew up sort of as a dreamer. i was on the school bus with other members in boston. it was known as a racist city or was because of the bussing controversy in the '70s when white kids were forced into black neighborhoods and black kids into white neighborhoods. there was protesting. i was on those buses and really was what short of shaped my life. i grew up going to school with all-black kids and spanish kids and kids of all races. i got to learn to dream and to imagine, you know, greater things for myself. than i would have just being in the neighborhood with my friend and my older brothers and imagining when oil steal my first car like my older brothers. >> you come from a family of nine kids. >> i have to ask you about that. several members of your family are also in the entertainment business, a lot of people of course know marc wahlberg your brother and others.
8:42 am
what was that like and how did you become so active? >> it was pretty interesting growing up with nine of us. the fight was always for a little bit of attention. that sort of why i sort of gravitated towards the spot light. i found at an early age that getting positive attention worked for me. i think sometimes when you grow up in a big family and parents are struggling to get by. we had it pretty tough. there were times when, you know, they were shutting the water out front and nine kids and my dad and the dog were chasing the water department, come back here. we had it tough. i found that positive reaction, it was a good way tore me to get attention. other kids don't. sometimes in the struggle to be noticed by your parents kids do the wrong thing and i think some of my brothers and sisters made those choice. >> the family has a restaurant called wahlbergers. what makes a good burger? >> cheese. we grew up with the free cheese.
8:43 am
we used to get free cheese and free peanut butter and all the government aid food but we used the same cheese from those early days in our childhood because it melts the best. >> is it american cheese? >> yeah. >> cheddar is always good. >> free cheese. >> on "bluebloods" the executive producer said you're the engine that drive the show. that's a very nice thing to say. do you feel that? >> coming from him that's an amazing compliment. being on a show with tom se selleck, hard to take credit for being the engine. he's been doing this for so long. network with him every day is a real treat. >> you live tweet through the show which is interesting. how do you deal with some of the negative tweets? >> you know what? twitter has helped me. growing up in the kid in the spotlight i wasn't ready for the negative stuff that comes along with it.
8:44 am
i would read criticisms in the local papers where i grew up, i wanted to be in those newspapers and now i am for all the wrong reasons. all i was doing was making pop records and i'm splashed on the pages for this and all these wrong deeds. twitter sort of as an adult has helped me because i realize if i shine a light on the one negative comment and don't pay attention to the 3 million positive ones that come in i'm bringing attention to the negativity. i learned to ignore the bad stuff and focus on the good stuff and i have the power to eliminate the negative stuff if i houston astros to and that's what i choose to do. >> tell me how to do that. i get one negative and that's the one that sticks with me all day long. that's true. >> it's at the expense of all the people. >> thank you donnie. good to see you. continued success friday night "bluebloods." at 10:00, 9:00 central right here on cbs. film critic david den by want to know do the movies have a

my problem with all of these super productions of all the pixels flying around and meaning nothing is it just vanishes. you have no imprint. you wake up the next day an you don't taste the movie any more. it's not imprinted in your head any more. i'm a real world, you know, realist guy. i like men and women together nuclear weapon have a chapter, searching for movie blitz in the digital world. i think it's so true people are thinking i can watch it on my ipod or ipad. you said not the same experience. >> the industry says kids are platform agnostic. think about that phrase for a second. they will look at any screen any time anywhere. i had a terrible time with an ipad because i'm near sighted. i had to put it on my belly, you know. >> then you breathe. knives breathing and watching "pirates of the caribbean." on ship board it was going up and down. i want to be overwhelmed by the screen. i want to be immersed.

8:51 am
of local color. >> are you suggesting they shouldn't make money? >> they can do it differently. they can play to small winners. or they can do what has been said. take down those upfront costs. clooney has done this. pay the directors $750,000. and then divide the take at the back end according to fixed percentages. everyone will get paid. if it's a hit you get an enormous payout. the initial layout will sob much cheaper that it might encourage you to take more interest to it. you're not spending $90 million on an ordinary movie. maybe 50. that's still a lot of money. it would make the system saner. it's a great idea. the trouble is the agents won't go for it because they need to get their star. >> you said there are not a lot

good morning. well, traffic is still trying to recover across the san mateo bridge westbound 92. there was an earlier accident near the high-rise. it is now cleared. but traffic is still stacked up as you approach the flat section of the bridge. they have been doing roadwork on westbound 92 so that's not helping either. also the nimitz 880 through oakland, if you are passing the oakland coliseum, very stop and go right now from hayward towards downtown. there was a crash just beyond the high street exit. this is your drive time in the red right now. 35 minutes between 238 and the maze. by the way, there is a lunchtime as game so we may see extra tie-ups there, as well. and a quick check of drive times for the east bay, look at the eastshore freeway, 45 minutes from the carquinez bridge to the maze. captions by: caption colorado ,,,,,,,,
